I still look at your picture on the wall
I never could take it down even after
I knew you were gone
I kept all of your letters to me
bound in a velvet ribbon… the same
sweet softness you had in
your eyes when you looked at me
each evening when we shared our
experiences of the day
I keep the recording I have of your
voice on the answering machine
I listen to it tell me you love me
and that you'll be home soon…
the waiting is over
but you didn't come back even
though there were only two days
left to cross off on the calendar
I live with your silver chain
around my neck, the clasp welded
holding the charms that were not
charmed though they were your identity
In my dreams I hold you tight against
me once more before you leave
and remember your kiss…
some nights I still awaken with a
scream trapped in my heart
the same one that I heard when
they knocked on my door
dressed in uniforms the same
blue as the midnight that finds
me missing you…and they said
"we regret to inform you…"
your last I love you echoes
through the empty bed
while I wait for this war
so long past to finally be over
that I may rest again in
the arms of my soldier

How terrifying ... expressively written, I commend you ...
